Baptist Church of Mizoram, Gilead (Local Church) and AICS jointly celebrate the 119th Anivarsary of the arrival of the pioneer missionareis (Rev. FW Savidge and Rev. JH Lorrain) who laid the foundation of the Gospel here in Mizoram at Pastor Thanzinga Chapel, AICS. The two pioneer missionaries had arrived Mizoram (Changsil) on 11th January, 1894 as Arthington Aborigine Mission. Since 1940s the Mizo Christians celebrate 11th January as ‘Missionary Day’ as the mark of the entrance of the gospel of Christ here in Mizoram. The two pioneer missionaries are deserved to call ‘Father of Mizo Modern Society’ as they laid various foundations in the Mizo Society i.e. Education, Litterature, Health Care etc.
